Joseph Williams - Denizen Tenant [2LP] (Orange Transparent 180 Gram Vinyl, former Toto lead vocalist) TOTO Member
Joseph Williams fronted Toto as a lead vocalist from 1986 to 1988, and was featured on the albums Fahrenheit (1986) and The Seventh One (1988). He also appeared on the 2006 release Falling in Between, sharing lead vocals with Luke on "Bottom of Your Soul." In 2010 he returned to the band, becoming frontman and lead vocalist, a tenure that continues to today. Denizen Tenant features a dozen new recordings. Amongst these are a cover of The Beatles "If I Fell," which Williams cites as the one specific song that taught him about the power of harmonies and vocal arrangements. On Peter Gabriel's "Don't Give Up," a very special guest performance is made by his daughter Hannah. Denizen Tenant was self-produced outside of the compositions "Black Dahlia" and "No Lessons" which were arranged and produced by Jay Gruska and mixed by Dave Way. Amongst the contributors here are Toto bandmates David Paich and Steve Lukather plus Simon Phillips, Leland Sklar, Lenny Castro, and Nathan East, all of whom enjoyed tenures in Toto as well.
